Want to keep your lawn healthy and strong? Aeration is a must with soil compaction below the surface and thatch build-up above. Both issues prevent grass roots from getting necessary essentials, such as water, oxygen, and nutrients. On top of that, compaction also stresses roots as tightly packed particles pressure and even choke them. At Lawn Doctor of Benton-Bryant, we can help. With our lawn aeration services, available across the Benton, AR area, we can stop the struggle, prevent these problems in the future, and keep your lawn growing strong through every season.
Aeration from Lawn Doctor of Benton-Bryant: What are the Benefits?
Soil compaction happens when air pockets collapse in the soil. This can result from pressure created by foot traffic in your lawn and the use of heavy machinery or equipment. It’s also common in areas near walkways and driveways that get more use. Clay soil typically requires more frequent aeration, as well, when compared to other types.
With core aeration, we can loosen your soil using our leading-edge, exclusive Turf Tamer® equipment. It works by extracting small plugs of dirt, grass, and thatch a few inches deep from around your lawn. This effectively breaks up the heavy layer of thatch that’s blocking out vital resources. At the same time, it decompresses dense soil so grass roots have room to breathe again and absorb more necessities.
As a result, your lawn will have:
- A deeper, more extensive root structure that better supports healthy growth
- The ability to take in a higher level of fertilizer, air, and water more efficiently
- Improved resistance to pests, diseases, and insects due to lighter surface thatch
- Boosted tolerance to stress from the environment
